As Thai Buddhist temples go, Wat Asokaram is a relative new-comer, being built in the early 1960s.
But it has its own uniqueness, including a group of 13 white pagodas, symbolising Buddha's disciples and, it is asserted, Buddha relics encased inside gold, silver and copper urns.
(If you took the time to go around the world and counted how many Buddha temples claim to have genuine Buddha relics, you would find that Buddha must have had more hair than a wooly mammoth and more teeth than a Great White Shark).
My cynical remarks to one side, Wat Asokaram is highly revered by Thai Buddhists and is famed for meditation and quite reflection.
